MG Forged French Chef Knife Blade
Stainless Steel blade, forged from a single piece of steel with integrated bolster.
Martinez & Gascon is a Spanish company, establised at the end of WWII, manufacturing chef and butchering knives.
This blade is in the French chef style, and the smaller, paring knife of the "2 blades every chef must have".
The MG French Forged 100 blade is 2 mm thick, about 20 mm high and has about 100 mm of blade.
The blade is forged from a single Molybdenum/Vanadium Stainless Steel billet, meaning the bolster is integrated and a solid piece of the blade.
The blades are ground on German Berger grinders by hand.
Total length from tip to end of tang is 200 mm, the tang has holes for optional pins.
there are 2 x 4 mm holes, 2 x 5.8 mm holes and a rectangular 4x7 mm hole.
MG Steel has very high tensile strength:(C=0.6, Cr=14, Mo=0.5, Va=0.15).
** these blades will require some final sharpening before use **
